Retention and Engagement is a priority for leaders globally, most of this is driven by what the recent PWC report on “what workers want” has found and that is 38% of Australian workers are looking for a new job and the numbers could get higher.
It is even more imperative now than ever to ensure that employers invest and are very clear on their employee engagement tool kit that will build loyalty, attract and retain talent.
The next time you are sitting in a meeting take a look around, how many of the people around you are really not happy in their role, in the business, engaged in the culture, vision or values
Are they coming into work excited or are they simply turning up, doing what they need to do and going home.
As leaders we need to ensure that we have created environments that people feel safe to share their issues, otherwise what often happens is that they will start looking for jobs and by the time they come to you it is too late.
